The world today is changing significantly faster than before due to the availability and the use of IT. The click of a mouse is enough to have shared information between two extreme ends of the world. This fact calls for a responsive system of education that is able to cope with the impulses that arise. The issues of educational relevance, flexibility, and the variations in the nature of the learners are impacting on the design and organisation of most responsive educational systems. This paper analyses the key factors that are driving the organisation of VET in Australia with the aim of drawing possible lessons for a developing country. The Australian case will be viewed against the background of the rest of the developed world and the general world trends. In particular, the paper will draw lessons based on the teaching and learning of VET in Kenya. Some of the issues to be analysed are the teaching, learning, qualification and the responsiveness to the changes in technology especially at the workplace. This paper is an analysis of the Australian education with emphasis on the VET system with a view of drawing possible lessons for Kenya and other developing countries.
